Bakelite bracelet carved step-down Bakelite bangle

* This type of carved Bakelite bangle is known as step-down because each layer of carving "steps down" from the layer before it. Also known as Saturn carved because, looked at head-on, each step looks like a ring. The exterior of this bracelet appears to be a green & yellow marble. If you look closely at the pictures you can see the translucence at the edges and top of the bangle. However, when you hold this piece up to the light you can see that this bangle was originally blue!

* This lovely Bakelite bracelet measures 1/2" wide and just over 3/8" thick. It has an interior opening of 2 1/2".

* This Bakelite bangle is in very, very good vintage condition. There is a tiny chip on the side of the center strip which I can feel, but I can't see. Other than that there are no chips, cracks or visible scratches and the bracelet has a nice, glossy finish.

All items are shipped in a gift box unless otherwise noted. Also included is a 10% off discount code for future purchases.

All Bakelite is tested using a variety of methods. These include Simichrome polish, hot water (smell test), tapping bangles together for the appropriate sound, and checking for mold lines and other discrepancies.

Please examine the pictures carefully as they are part of the description. I examine each piece listed and will note any flaws or defects I find. If you have any questions about this piece, please convo me.

I use a variety of colored backgrounds and editing techniques to try to match what I see with how the item displays on my computer. Please be aware that different computer monitors "see" color differently depending on the quality of their resolution and level of available color variation.
